Runflat Tyres Safer

Runflat Tyres Safer-Are now a Major Car Safety Feature-by Bridgestone Tyres

Runflat Tyres Safer

Bridgestone tyres

So, Bridgestone tyres first started to develop the concept of the runflat tyre. Of course, in Japan as part of type of aid to disabled people. The tyre that was used was a 175/70×13 that had a strengthened side wall. Consequently, this was  fitted on to the Honda Civic. As a result, this was done in the “International Year Of The Disabled”.

Bridgestone tyres run flat

 

Later this side wall protection technology was used on the Porsche 959. Bridgestone called the new tyre the Potenza RE71.

This new development proved a success. So,in the 1990s Bridgestone  developed the TPMS,”Tyre Pressure Monitoring System” . This was to enable the driver to know when a tyre had lost pressure.Henceforth, a light on the dash would be light up when the tyre pressure dropped. Subsequently, warning the driver if a tyre went flat. In my opinion this made the Runflat Tyres Safer. Of course, this system was to become very popular as a safety feature. So,and was fitted to many of the German made cars such as BMW.

Runflat Tyres are Safer allowing the driver to carry on driving the car with a flat tyre.

There are restrictions though. Specifically, the car must be driven at 50 mph for a maximum distance of 50 miles. This enables the driver to drive the car to a safe stopping place. Explicitly, without the car swerving or deviating off course. Those cars that are fitted with this Runflat Tyres Safer system. Therefore, do not carry a jack or spare wheel !

In my opinion this lets the system down. Some car makers will tell us that this makes the car lighter. Therefore more fuel efficient and so greener. In my opinion I feel that in general it is a good idea and makes the vehicles much safer. Significantly, if the car has a rapid loss of air (blowout). Say on a busy motorway. Of course with runflats the car will not deviate. Keeping it in a straight line,making driving with Runflat Tyres much Safer.

The odds of this happening though are not as high as the motorist having what I call a “normal puncture”,

this is where the grey area is and this is what Bridgestone  say…

With certain types of punctures in the tread area, the Bridgestone Run-Flat technology tyres may be repaired subject to certain conditions (Depending on how far and at what speed the car was driven after the puncture). Please consult your nearest RFT authorized dealer to have yours inspected.
Before attempting a repair, consult the vehicle owner’s manual for restrictions. The vehicle manufacturer may restrict the use of repaired tires on its vehicles”… 

In my opinion we would repair a runflat tyre only if the customer says that he has had a slight loss of pressure and we can find an object such as a screw or nail within the legal area of a normal tyre puncture for example ¾ 0f the tread width from the centre of the tread outwards and the tyre had not run whilst in a totally deflated state, we would have to take the drivers word for this,so we always take caution and inspect the tyre for any signs of running under inflated, such as

carbon dust or creasing and cracking on the inside of the casing. If we are not sure we would always fit a new tyre.

Eric Roberts… https://www.pellonautocentre.com/runflat_tyres.htm

Can I replace run flat tyres with normal tyres ?

In my opinion the answer is NO , but the following text from  Bridgestones  website does open a slight gap…

Bridgestone EU do not recommend mixing tyres with Run-Flat Technology and standard tyres on the same vehicle, even if paired in axle sets. If you have a puncture, tyres with Run-Flat Technology are designed to permit you to proceed to a tyre dealer where you can have the tyre checked and replaced if necessary with another tyre with Run Flat Tyres Technology. In exceptional and emergency circumstances a conventional tyre of the same size can be fitted. It must be noted that standard tyres do not have Runflat Tyres Safer characteristics and should be removed at the earliest opportunity”http://www.runflat.eu/english/qa/

In my opinion they should say that the two different types of tyres should not be mixed, but they say that you can mix them in an emergency, could the fact that the car owner just cant afford them be classed as an emergency.

Ring your insurance company is the advice that I give to all you 2nd and 3rd hand BMW Mini owners when you fall on the floor at the cost of replacing runflat tyres.

“OE tires are also designed with a specific performance in mind. This could be high-performance handling, for example, to complement a sports car. Other vehicles might have been originally built with a focus on fuel efficiency such as in the case of hybrids. Buying OE as a replacement tire means the consumer can stay true to what the OE manufacturer had in mind when they built the vehicle.”… http://www.moderntiredealer.com/news/story/2012/11/oe-or-replacement-yokohama-breaks-it-down.aspx

Hi I would like to introduce myself. I have worked in the Garage and tyre and Budget Car Battery business now for 40 years. I have worked for a couple for national tyre companies in my younger days, before starting my first business. I now own a company here in the UK called Pellon Tyre and Auto-centre, and I am a keen blogger about anything to do with cars and their related products that will help my business. We are members of Point-S and MotorCodes and are also a Unipart Car Care Centre and of course Tyresafe.

Brake Pedal Creep? Is your car affected by this ? Diesel brakes only

Brake Pedal Creep

Brake Pedal Creep

Brake Pedal Creep

A recent customer enquiry came up with an old problem. As a result she had been sitting in her car on a cold day in Bridlington. Of course on the east coast on Yorkshire. The ladies name was Joan. Joan and her husband had decided to go for a day trip to the seaside.
Unfortunately for them, the weather turned out to be very cold and wet. Consequently, she decided to have some fish and chips and keep the engine running to keep warm. For some strange reason she rested her foot on the brake pedal.
Indeed for some reason the pedal had slowly crept to a stop near the end of its play. This startled Joan? However the rain stopped and the day brightened up. The engine was switched off and the pedal became hard again.
At the end of the day the couple returned and home. As a result of the peddle experience she gave us a call. Consequently, we checked the Vauxhall cars records. Hence, the brakes had some work carried out on them about two months previously.
Therefore to alleviate her concerns, we booked the car in for another brake check. Although we last carried any brake work out two months. Then we decided to check them out? On account of we did fit a new set of pads on the brake service.
Sometimes, when you replace new pads. Hence, it is possible to forget to open the brake bleed nipple. Thus when you push back the piston to remove the old pads. Because the bleed nipple is closed, then the fluid is pushed back into the brake master cylinder. As a result of this, the fluid can reverse the seals in the master cylinder.

Brake Pedal Creep

However, this would not be the case if a professional mechanic had fitted the pads. So this would have been less likely to be the cause. Joans cars brakes were rigorously check and no problems were found.
Because of this then I decided to look into the problem. Consequently, I discovered that it was fairly common on Vauxhall cars. Links have been made to incorrectly setting up the ABS brake system. Other reasons have included the development of the diesel car brakes. As a result, over the years diesel cars have become bigger and therefore heavier in weight.
Vehicle manufacturers have had to come up with stronger braking systems.Thus to be able to stop these heavier cars. A thing that I did not know? Was that the low pedal problem could be associated with the addition of twin diaphragm boosters.
To stop bigger vehicles then the manufacturers fitted bigger brake calipers and larger pistons. Also larger disc s were fitted and also larger bore master cylinders. As a result the master cylinder displaces more fluid, but with less pressure. I am not saying that this was the reason for my customers car or any other, but it does make some sense.

Diesel Brake Pedal Creep

car makers use twin diaphragm boosters. Hence that will give reduced brake pedal effort and the brakes more bite. As a result of this there has been incidents of the brake pedal fading. Especially on diesel powered cars.
What I do not understand is that it does not happen on all diesel cars. I am sur that there would be a huge outcry if it did.
If you have a vehicle with brake pedal creep at idle, what can be done?
Best thing I can suggest is if your car has a hard pedal without the engine running and the vacuum exhausted. Then it is possible that the problem is not your cars master cylinder but could possibly be vacuum related.
We then road tested Joans car on our MOT brake tester. All the readings were perfect and the wheels locked off as they should have. In fact to conclude, most diesel cars will show signs of brake pedal fading. When we explained this to Joan, then she was relieved and pleased with the results and our service.

020 Range Rover battery-Which VARTA CAR BATTERY for your Range Rover.

020 Range Rover battery

Your Range Rover needs a 020 Range Rover battery duty car battery

Drivers of the Range Rover come into two groups of motorists. Basically the owners of the older models will go for cheapest battery. But will also purchase the biggest battery. Hence, that they can to fit their

Varta batteries are outstanding quality, and this is reflected in the price. You can of course buy a Varta from an online company and save yourself some money, but if you prefer you can call into one the many dealers throughout the UK.

particular car. Consequently, which is a 020 Range Rover battery. Other people who own the newer models.Will have a tendency to want a better make of battery and also the correct battery for the car.

Some of the more up to date Range Rovers also take a battery that is larger than the 019 battery. This battery in  Varta batteries is coded as the Varta Silver L1 (120) 020 Range Rover battery and is the largest car battery fitted to these cars.

The 120 battery is only slightly larger than the 019. But it has much more capacity and the 120 battery .Hence, must be fitted because of the higher capacity. Due to the large amount of electrics that most cars are now using. Thus, to control emissions. The users of the older Range Rovers will often buy Varta Car Batteries Online. Making cost savings say compared with buying from the local garage. These earlier models have batteries that are easier to fit, usually just the same as a regular family car, but the later more modern cars should have their battery fitted by an expert at an Autocentre or garage.

020 Range Rover battery

The large 120 batteries are for a start very heavy, the 020 Range Rover battery weighs just under 25 kg the battery is also more powerful 020 Range Rover batterythan the 019 at 110 amps 920 cold cranking amps it is larger and much more powerful.

 

The Range Rover cars are premium cars and should only use premium batteries. In all my 35 years experience I would only recommend that such cars should use Varta batteries and the correct one for the car. The Varta Battery Prices are made in several European countries by Johnson Controls.

Varta also make the batteries for stop/start models of cars that use the Varta stop/start AGM batteries. These batteries are sold by Varta stockists and should only be replaced by the exact same battery that is fitted to the vehicle.

Varta batteries stands originally for (Vertrieb Aufladung Reparatur Transportabler Akkumulatoren). Interestingly,  had its headquarters in the German cities of Berlin and Hagen. Of course, in the district of Westphalia. As a result, the business was bought by a certain Gunther Quandt just after the first world war.

The Varta car Battery company then made batteries. Unfortunately,  that were used in the second world war German battle machine. Intensively,used to help power submarines and also for the German Luftwaffe. Henceforth, the batteries were made by slave labour under very poor working conditions. So, perhaps the side of Varta batteries that we should forget.

Modern Varta battery standards

The modern day Varta car Battery product is one of excellence. Of course, raising standards of the battery world with its quality products. Fortunately, After many changes in directors. Then the company ownership Varta batteries was purchased by Johnson Controls in 2002. Re-capitalization, was thought to be a great step forward in the Varta car Battery industry. Raising the standards of quality even higher than previously thought possible. 

It is thought that Johnson Controls paid in the region of $240 million for the Varta battery side of the business and the deal went through by the end of 2003, and is now one of the largest battery companies on the Planet.

Nitrogen Gas Advantages-The pluses and Minusus оf Using Nitrogen Gas tо Inflate your Tyres

Nitrogen Gas Advantages;Nitrogen gas inflated tyres use thіs dry, inert gas tо inflate

Nitrogen Gas Advantages;Aircraft  tyres, off-road truck tyres, (that usually work in mining and quarries) military vehicle tyres, аnd racing car tyres fоr improved performance, mоrе tyre mileage аnd better fuel economy. More аnd mоrе cars, light trucks, SUVs, Mini-vans аnd Crossover vehicles аrе using nitrogen gas inflated tyres. Experts іn thе tyre industry indicate thаt oxidative aging (wheels corroding at the bead area) іs оnе оf thе primary causes оf decreased tyre lіfе.

Nitrogen Gas Advantages

Nitrogen Gas Advantages

Oxygen аnd moisture corrodes aluminum аnd steel wheels.Read More…

“First is that nitrogen is less likely to migrate through tire rubber than is oxygen, which means that your tire pressures will remain more stable over the long term. Racers figured out pretty quickly that tires filled with nitrogen rather than air also exhibit less pressure change with temperature swings. That means more consistent inflation pressures during a race as the tires heat up. And when you’re tweaking a race car’s handling with half-psi changes, that’s important”…

 Nitrogen vs Air In Tires – Why Nitrogen in Tires – Popular Mechanics

Oxygen аlsо reacts wіth rubber, another type оf “corrosion”. Whеn thіs corrosion starts, thе small particles break оff аnd form rust аnd dust, whіch cаn clog valve cores, causing thеm tо leak. Thе rough surfaces created frоm thе corrosive action оn thе wheels leads tо tyre beads thаt don’t seal properly, causing additional leaks, and loss of pressure.

Oxygen аlsо ages thе inner liner, thе thin layer оf butyl rubber inside thе tyre whose function іs tо kееp air away frоm penetrating thе carcass. As thе inner liner ages, mоrе аnd mоrе air molecules cаn pass thrоugh іt, causing mоrе pressure losses. These Air Pressure losses іn а truck tyre cаn average 2 psi а mоnth аs а result оf thе air passing thrоugh thе sidewalls. As іt passes thrоugh thе rubber, thе oxygen cаn аlsо corrode thе steel cords, causing thеm tо rust too.

Whіlе both Nitrogen Gas Advantages аnd oxygen cаn permeate rubber, nitrogen does іt much mоrе slowly. It might tаkе 6 months tо lose 2 psi wіth nitrogen, compared tо just а mоnth wіth air. And nitrogen іs fаr less reactive. It does nоt cause rust оr corrosion оn steel оr aluminum, аnd іt does nоt degrade rubber. Wheel surfaces stay smooth аnd clean, rubber remains supple аnd resilient.

Nitrogen аlsо wіll nоt degrade thе rubber seal іn thе valve core whіch extends valve core lіfе аnd hеlps prevents core leaks.

Nitrogen gas reduces thе water vapor іn thе compressed air оf your tyres.

Thе air around us іs full оf water vapor. Compressing air concentrates thе water іn the air. Whеn yоu compress air, іt takes up much less volume, but thе percentage оf water by volume іs greatly increased. This why we have to use water filters on our compressors, and drain them at regular intervals.

Water vapor іn compressed air acts аs а catalyst, accelerating rust аnd corrosion. Water vapor аlsо absorbs аnd holds heat. And whеn іt changes frоm liquid tо vapor, water expands tremendously іn volume.

As а result, tyres inflated wіth water saturated air tend tо run hotter, fluctuating іn pressure . Thаt іs оnе оf thе Nitrogen Gas Advantages and why nitrogen is used in racing tyres, whеrе fractions in the tyre pressures cаn radically change the handling characteristics, (in a racing situation) аrе inflated wіth dry nitrogen.

Thе cost fоr аll thеsе added benefits іs nоt much mоrе thаn inflating your tyres wіth regular air. Thе average cost tо fill а tyre wіth Nitrogen gas cаn vary widely, anywhere frоm £3-5 per tyre, depending оn several variables such аs tyre size, pressure, I may use it as part of the service, I remember the days when we had to charge for a new valve and wheel balancing, but these are now added to the whole tyre package. Also tyre casing disposal is getting cheaper and cheaper and in most cases is now included in the price of the whole package. Another good reason for nitrogen is the fact that we should have not have to spend 5 minutes cleaning the wheels of rust and corroded alloy every time we change a new tyre.

Kumho Tyres Design Award-Winners for design of the Ecsta Le Sport KU39

Kumho Tyres Design Award;Kumho tyres believe in good looks as well as performance

One thing to me that determines a good tyre, is the tyres looks. Many tyre manufacturers are now looking in that direction, the fact that a tyre should also look good, when fitted to a classy car. You only have to look at Pirelli tyres used in F1 racing, with all the colours that they use to make the tyres fit into the overall picture of the racing scene.

One of first tyre companies to work on their image for better tyre design, was Vredestein tyres in Holland. They contracted the great car designer team from the Giugiaro Design studio.

This new concept of combining design and tyre performance gave a great boost to the Dutch tyre company. Vredestein winter tyres are now World famous for their performance in winter conditions and indeed now win many awards from the leading European tyre magazine tests.

Kumho tyres are aiming for high design standards

Now one of the Worlds up and coming tyre companies, Kumho tyres are following in the footsteps of the major tyre companies by winning design awards.

ECSTA LE Sport tyre

This tyre from Kumho Tyres Design Award is a tyre with terrific sporting performance, with the LE standing for “Luxury Edition”. The tyre will give a performance that is up to scratch with racing tyre levels, while at the same time commanding a high level of comfort and a high standard of driving performance, this tyre is a must for the luxury car market and must be driven on to appreciate this Kumho Ecsta Le Sport KU39 tyres performance and cornering attributes.

This tyre has also won a design award, in fact the tyre won “Three design awards”…

069 Lucas Car Batteries

069 Lucas Car Batteries-Do Lucas Make Their Own car batteries

Premium 069 Lucas Car batteries069 Lucas Car Batteries

So, today’s car battery market is flooded with all kinds of different makes of products. Some makes are household names. Such as 069 Lucas Car Batteries and others are not so well known. All kinds of makes are springing up. Of course,with claims and counter claims about how good their batteries are.

Significantly, one of the driving forces in this has been the internet ! Especially E-bay. This is where you are likely to find the cheapest car battery prices . Subsequently, then the problem is that do you trust what you are buying. I have noticed recently. That the cheapest price for 069 Lucas Car Batteries. Consequently, is not even a new one ! But looks like a re-used product what ever that means ! Many auto owners however will want to buy a quality product. Going for the products that are made by a reputable company. Of course, such as Lucas who make the 069 Lucas Car Batteries.

Are you selling your car ?

The truth is that unless you are selling your car. Then you should stick to a named product that you can trust. Naturally,the better makes will not be the cheapest. But you must be able to rely on the after service. Customers are better off ordering your new one from an actual web-site. Of course, than any other form of internet selling platform. The website will be accountable if you should get a problem with say a delivery that has gone wrong or a faulty battery.

You can even ring up a web-site to confirm that the one that you are buying is the correct one for your car. A few examples of names you can trust would be Lucas batteries. As i have said earlier they do not manufacture their own any more. The rights to sell 069 Lucas Car Batteries were bought by wholesalers Manbat. The company sell two standards. The Classic and the  Premium.

Lucas premium car batteries are a first class product

I have been selling car products now for well over 30 years, longer than I care to remember, and consequently I have seen these companies come and go , but the 069 Lucas Car Batteries has always kept a high standard of quality, and maintained a good high standard in the dealers. The  premium battery is a maintenance free battery (that means you dont have to top them up every two minutes) with calcium/ calcium technology, to cope with the modern car electric systems and slightly higher voltage requirements. This battery is  made by Johnson controls and is in a black casing, which is a recycled product. The  classic is more of a budget battery suitable for the older models of cars and lower engine capacities, this battery could be made by different European  manufacturers, but is selected by Manbat to offer excellent service in use.

As a footnote Johnson Controls have now sold their battery manufacturing side of the business.

069 Lucas Car Batteries

A new battery just fitted in our Halifax depot UK

You know that if you select  069 Lucas Car Batteries that you can rely on the dealer to look after you if you should occur any problems after the purchase, whether in the their store or on their website, beware of other selling platforms on the internet, they may have vanished when a problem raise its ugly head.

Lithium-Ion golf batteries (A New Breed of Battery) much lighter to carry for Golfers?

Though often overlooked, the Lithium-Ion golf batteries are one of the greatest inventions in all time.(for golfers )

In today’s world, we use batteries to power our accessories and devices such as phones, controllers, and children toys. Battery sales in the United States alone

Lithium-Ion golf batteries

progolf 16amp lithium battery

usually amount to almost fifty billion dollars a year, a number that grows annually by more than five percent per year. Lithium-Ion golf batteries in particular are becoming more and more popular because of their efficiency and power. If you are interested in lithium-ion golf  batteries be sure to check out this article.

To begin, you should know how batteries work. Batteries are in essence, a collection of several devices that includes electrochemical cells. Electrochemical cells have the ability to transform chemical energy into electrical energy which then can be sued to power many devices. Primary batteries are the most common form of battery. They contain enough a chemical energy to power a device for a set time, but cannot be recharged. . In contrast, rechargeable batteries can be recharged and used over and over.

Lithium-Ion golf batteries are among the best types of golf batteries. They last longer than other batteries. They also charge faster, saving your valuable time and are friendlier to the environment than most other batteries.

golf batteries

Golf carts can now run on lithium-Ion batteries

Lithium-Ion golf batteries are especially useful for golf batteries (buggies).

Golf carts and buggies require strong, efficient batteries that will work for several years. Lithium-Ion golf batteries fill all of these requirements. They can be used for STAR CARS, Club cars, and GEM cars. Many companies also offer a warranty on lithium-ion batteries, normally around 2 years. Many Lithium ion golf  batteries for golf carts are often much lighter than their counterparts. This is important because light batteries allow your cart to maneuver better. They also do not weight your cart down.

The voltage and amp hours of the battery vary with the type of cart. The voltage can vary anywhere from 12, 24, 36 to 46 volts. The amp hours can vary from 40 to 100 amps, though most lithium ion golf batteries are 100 Amp hours. However most of these batteries are around seven inches long, six inches wide, and are seven inches tall. Such Lithium-Ion golf batteries also offer an automatic battery management system. This is a system that is included in the inside of the battery. It helps balance your cells without any intervention needed and can cut off power from terminals if it detects high or low voltage or short circuits.

I hope you enjoyed this article about Lithium-Ion golf batteries written for Eric Roberts www.batteriesontheweb.co.uk

Yokohama Winters are a proven Winter safety advantage from Pellon Tyre Shop Yorkshire UK

Tyres are arguably the most important part of your car. (Yokohama Winters)

Of course winter tyres fill a variety of roles in improving your cars performance. Most importantly making sure that the car can roll! Without strong, adequate tyres at the correct pressures . Naturally, you can run the risk of getting a blowout on the motorway. Importantly, not being able to control your car in extreme winter weather conditions. Your total fuel mileage is also lower with poor tyres. So, you want tyres that are strong, durable, and quiet. You also want them to last a long time. If you live in a northern or hilly snowy area, such as Halifax here in west Yorkshire ,you probably want even more specialized tyres that perform well in snowy or icy winter conditions. Yokohama Winters are one of the best in their class for such a job.Yokohama Winters

Now there is no overall “best tyre”. Some tyres enable fast driving. Others function better with wear and are more durable. However if you live in a cold northern city such as Halifax, Huddersfield, or Bradford, Yokohama Winters are your best bet.

Yokohama Winters 

are designed to give you complete control over your car and maximum traction in icy conditions. They use specialized technology and tread designs are designed to give you complete control over your car and maximum traction in icy conditions. They use specialized technology and tread designs to ensure that icy driving is no problem. Just driving slowly and carefully isn’t a valid option, especially if you live in a city that receives tons of ice and snow. You need the control, grip, and precision that winter tyres offer.

There are several false ideas that people have concerning winter tyres. First, many people believe you only need two winter tyres or that you don’t need winter tires at all. Regular summer tyres or even all-season tyres don’t offer the same level of control or safety as Yokohama Winters, especially in extreme conditions. Also, contrary to popular belief, you want to have four winter tyres. If your car uses a winter pair in the front, then a regular set of tyres in the back, then each end of your car will react differently. This can be extremely detrimental if you are sliding on ice or driving in extreme weather. Investing four Pirelli tyres is much safer for accelerating, braking, and handling car.

Traction control and ABS brakes offer only limited benefits to actually winter tyres.

Traction control does not change the traction of your tyres in any way, but rather controls the acceleration of your tyre. Winter tyres give the grip you need in winter conditions.

Yokohama Winters

Yokohama tyres are undoubtedly one of the leading tyre companies in the World to embark in research and development. They are continually investing in motorsport events to enable better designed products in their domestic regular tyre brands.

Similarly, while ABS brakes will only ensure that car tyres (wheels) will not lock up, they also don’t improve the actual tyres traction.

I hope you enjoyed this article about Yokohama Winters.
